The usual. Chuck Barrett and Keith Jackson will call the game.
On satellite radio, the game will be on Sirius 119 and XM 191.
If you're in Starkville for the game, local Mississippi State radio is on 100.9
Line has Mississippi Stae (-11) and the O/U at (59.5)
If that have an over under on game time, take the under on that - especially if you have Arkansas covering. Gonna be a lot of running in this one, including the clock.
45 degrees, 0% chance of rain (Prime Bielema weather), and 100% LOTS of obnoxious cowbelling at game time for this one. Are cowbells more or less obnoxious in the cold? We'll go with more.
We also predict PLENTY of camo in the stands.
CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA!
#1 - The Razorbacks have beaten the nation's top-ranked team four times in program history, most recently in that triple overtime epic at Baton Rouge in 2007 over LSU. In the last 10 seasons (counting this one) Arkansas has faced a team ranked #1 in eight of them, and the two in which they did not, 2006 and 2008, the Hogs did play the team that eventually won the national title. Can the Razorbacks knock off another one?
God speed to those of you who are going to sit through 2-3 hours of the obnoxiousness that is Mississippi State cowbell-ing, interrupted occasionally by a football game. This Mississippi State team has got to be the least comfortable team to be a target as the #1 team in the nation as there has been in a few years. That said, this game does not matchup well for the Hogs. Mississippi State reminds me most of Auburn (in the 2nd half vs. Arkansas) with a big, mobile QB and a strong running game. O/U on passing yards per team has got to be around the 100 yard mark right? I firmly believe that this Arkansas team will upset an SEC opponent this season, I'm just not sure this is the one.
